USA -(Ammoland.com)- When everything goes sideways, you’ve got two choices – survive or fail to survive. To make it through life’s toughest moments you’ve got to have the right tools.
To that end, Ontario Knife Company (OKC) has updated two of the most popular survival blades in its history with new, modern versions. The SPEC PLUS Alpha Series includes the new SP-A Survival Knife and the SP-A Machete, each designed to meet and exceed your need to construct a shelter, forage for food, or to respond when the fight comes to you.
The SP-A Survival Knife is an update on OKC’s popular SP-2 Survival Knife. This full-skeleton tang fixed-blade knife is made from high-carbon steel and a new ergonomically molded, thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) grip that remains firmly planted in your hand, even when wet. The SP-A has an overall length of 10.19-inches (25.88CM) with a 5-inch (12.70CM) blade.
The blade has a hardness rating of 57-59HRC and a durable phosphate coating. This is the perfect knife for tactical/survival use, hunting, first responders, and so much more. MSRP: $42.75.
The SP-A Machete is a versatile all-purpose tool and updated version of the popular SP-8 Survival Machete. The SP-A Machete has a full-skeleton tang, phosphate-coated, high-carbon steel blade with a full-length flat bevel and a secondary flat bevel. Like the SP-A Survival Knife it features the new ergonomically molded, TPE handle that retains grip even when wet.
It measures 12.19-inches (30.96CM) overall length with a 7.00-inch (17.78CM) blade. It holds a 57-59HRC hardness rating, which means this blade will not let you down when you need it. MSRP: $47.50.
